Boston companies using Django
We’re huge fans of Django, the Python web framework for perfectionists with deadlines. We not only provide 1-click deployment of a dozen or so Django web applications, but we also use Django for this website and the Appsembler dashboard.
I started the Django Boston user group in 2008, and we’ve had around 30 meetups to date. Last year Kevin Grinberg reached out to me and said that he was compiling a list of companies in Boston that were using Django. He was under a tight editorial deadline for BostInno, so we put out a call to the mailing list, and within 24 hours we had over 50 companies respond to a survey describing how and why they were using Django!
Among the respondents were well-known companies and organizations like Adobe, Akamai, Boston.com, Boston University, Hewlett Packard, Hubspot, WGBH and Harvard Medical School, as well as up-and-coming startups such as Locately, CustomMade and WebReply. See the article that Kevin wrote here.
It’s been a year since we compiled this list, and judging from the activity on the Django Boston mailing list, there are a lot of companies hiring Django developers. We’d like to do it a bit differently this time and make it more collaborative and self-sustaining. inspired by the Boston Ruby group’s Github wiki page with a list of companies in the Boston area that are working with Ruby, we put together this wiki page with Companies using Django in Massachusetts.
If your company is not listed, or you want to edit the entry for your company, simply click in the Edit Page button or fork the entire repo, make the change and submit a pull request. We’ll review the change and update the wiki page. Hopefully, this will make it easier to maintain an up-to-date page since every one is responsible for making sure their info is correct. Let me know if you have a better idea of how to manage this process.
